BEAGLE OF THE MONTH: Algernon!
Human Servants: His Rescuers at BIG ON BEAGLES RESCUE!
We've chosen Algernon to
be our February baby for good reason. Algernon needs Everyone to be his Valentine! Our little kissing machine needs
another costly surgery...
You may recall our big spender. Algernon came to us last fall. He had barely arrived at our repair shop when
he suddenly needed emergency surgery to remove a lengthy cloth-like material that he had ingested prior to his rescue and
that had badly perforated his intestines.
He was a very sick little boy with only a 50% chance of survival.
But he survived and while we were saving him, you were saving us.
Donations poured in to help cover the $9,000 surgery.
We were in complete awe of
Over the last several
weeks following his recovery, we started noticing a limp to his walk that has gradually worsened. A trip to our vet revealed
the unfortunate news that Algernon isn't done spending our hard-earned dollars. He's been diagnosed with a bi-lateral cruciate
ligament injury. His best bet is surgery…yet again. Al will be heading to Montreal to meet with a surgeon at the end
of the month and will likely undergo the surgery at that time. It aint gonna be cheap. But Al is so worth it. This is a guy
that finds reason to wag his tail in any situation. He also has a thing about kissing the ladies he meets. He wouldn't stop
kissing Dr. Natalie during his examination. As far as Algernon is concerned, Valentine's Day is every day!
Would you be his Valentine?
Here's an idea! If you're tired of giving the special Valentine
in your life the same old thing, we've got something way better than chocolates or roses!
about making a special Valentine's Day gift to Algernon in your loved one's honour?!!
be happy to send them a Love Note straight from Algernon…sealed with a KISS of course!!!
